“I practice Yoga so that I can do the work to be the best version of myself. I use the practice to nurture myself and develop self-acceptance. I draw on it to help me through difficult times. I practice to center myself, so I can consciously engage with the world in ways that are meaningful.” – Greg Nardi
Greg has been practising yoga since 1996. He is a 500hr E-RYT with Yoga Alliance. He is currently director of Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide, where he teaches workshops in yoga practice and theory internationally, and co-director of Grassroots Yoga where he teaches in his home of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
He draws on his experiences in the oral tradition of yoga, studying Sanskrit chanting and yoga philosophy in Mysore, India and asana practice at the KPJAYI. He’s also studied extensively with teachers in North America and Europe, as well as drawing on his personal experience of practice and ongoing self-study of academic research in contemporary and traditional yoga.
Since resigning his authorisation from the KPJAYI, he works with his colleagues at Amāyu Yoga developing an organisation and learning pathway for Ashtanga teachers that is consent driven, practitioner centred, and based in practitioner empowerment.
Greg believes in the healing power of yoga for all. His style of teaching assists students in finding the approach to the practice that is most beneficial for them.
Why we love Greg
We see Greg as a highly skilled teacher with an incredible knowledge of how the practice works, not only on a physical level but on a deeper philosophical level too. His integrity and dedication is plain to see and it’s always a pleasure to have him come and teach at Stillpoint, where the practitioners rave about his warm, calm demeanour, and beautifully focused classes.
